Perhaps you're missing the sublty between what is the "default" install when 
you just click next/next/next, and what is ON the server CD.  The spin == 
whats in the CD, and a define "default" install.  By "default" we would like 
to not make any assumptions about what kind of server the user wants to run, 
so we don't install any.  However we include them in the spin, so that they 
could CHOOSE to have certain things during the install, to go beyond 
the "default" install.
